I've been away for a week and have enjoyed reading the posts and seeing the pics of the lovely quilts. I finished three but forgot to take pics before I took them to the church. I'll see if I can get pics tomorrow and share. These three were ones I started last fall and just got back to.
I'm currently working on three more UFOs that are strips. I tend to cut leftover fabric into strips to make prayer quilts. I count them as UFOs since the strips are all hanging on hangers behind the closet door just waiting for me to have time to assemble them. The pic shows what is left after the three tops I've made. I sometimes think they multiply behind the door!

That's a great way to store your strips!

UFO finish counting day is here!🎇

Counting finishes by:
SBG—any UFO to you is a UFO to us—especially one as pretty as your afghan 👍
CK—since about half of us still can’t figure out how to post pictures anyway..why not count it? Looking forward to seeing
It when you can share 👏
OSG—hope you figure out the picture posting. The directions on the Help forum worked for me. 😀

I am declaring my Frolic quilt finished. There is a photo of the top on the BH mystery thread.

These 4 bring the grand total to 17. 🥳

Let’s keep going💪; we can still get there! We have an extra February day, after all.

LOL...it's hard to post a picture that hasn't been taken yet! Oh and I pulled one of my sister's UFO's off the LA and need to make binding. As this is a charity quilt, the binding process will go faster as I machine stitch all the binding. Hope to get pictures of both of them.

Stitching the binding on a UFO baby quilt that has been sitting around since last fall. Will post a photo tomorrow or Monday. One baby quilt down and three more to go!

Belfrybat, love the idea of the handing the strips on hangers. Duh, why haven't we all thought of that. Can you post a photo of one of your strip quilts so we can steal your idea. :o I am into serious stash depletion mode this year.

I really enjoyed seeing all of the finishes and reading your posts.

I’m sewing, but not on UFO’s. I completed my RWB and valentine guild challenge wall hanging. But I’m going back on track. My UFO’s; a Halloween scrappy from all stash and a pink and aqua quilt. Not sure they will be completed in a week, but pushing to complete 1 UFO. I just may have to dig out an UFO Easter table runner and complete for February. I’m still slowly working on my BHMQ- frolic. Oh well back to sewing/quilting.

I've got another long term ( ? 7 years) project that needs to have the last row and borders sewn on, then quilt, and bind. The reminder that we've got another week and even an extra day may just give me the kick in the pants that I need!

Here are my Feb UFO completions...wish I had a better place to take pics. I think I need a clothes line just to take them! The first the 20 yo that I quilted a pantograph on. The second was made by my sister for PL in her area. I FMQ "l's in the second border, a loopy swirl in the first and an overall zigzag in the center.

Oksewglad, Love your quilts especially the red, white, and blue! That's a lot of work.

I finished my Spider table topper. The spiders are collages and made to look like Orb Spiders or often called Halloween Spiders.

Last year I bought indoor/outdoor fabric to make a ruler/template carrying bag. I finished it today!! It is huge. My Large stripology ruler is around 24" and it slides in with extra space. Don't know if it will count towards UFO's but I am so glad to have it finished and ready for class next week.
